09:04 AM ET 10.12 | The medical treatment Miami Heat forward Michael Beasley required after a preseason game against the Detroit Pistons wasn't for a self-inflicted punch, the team said Friday. Beasley needed treatment to reduce swelling above his eye following Thursday's game against Detroit, and reports initially said the reason was that he struck himself in the face out of frustration for mistakes on the court. Beasley said Friday he did hit himself as he ran back down the court during the third quarter of the win. But Beasley, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and team officials said the wound above Beasley's right eye was the result of an inadvertent blow he took from Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko as he attempted to block a shot in the third quarter, not from a self-inflicted punch.

Beasley was beasting...
He's definitely got a roster spot.
I hope they keep Roger Mason & Justin Hamilton also.
Cut Charlie Westbrick, Eric Griffin, Larry Drew 2, & waive Joel! Varnado is a cheaper Joel...

2013-2014 heat roster should be: Chalmers,Wade,Bron,Haslem,Bosh
bench: Cole,Allen,Battier,Beasley,Birdman,Jones,Lewis
reserves:Jus Hamilton,Oden(until he gets healthy enough to play),Mason
